Château de Saint Cosme

About Château Saint Cosme

Château de Saint Cosme is a best-kept secret for many wine trade insiders, a hugely respected and historic Southern Rhône producer, the Barruol family have called the beautiful appellation of Gigondas home for nearly 500 years.

 

Lying just to the north of Gigondas village, Château de Saint Cosme is the oldest property in the entire appellation. Acquiring the ancient site in 1570, the Barroul family began construction of the splendid château shortly after. Louis Barroul took up the mantle of 13 previous generations of winemakers at his family producer in 1992, and has become firmly established as one of the regions most talented and respected winemakers.

 

Louis is aided in no small part by the utterly unique and exquisite terroir of Château de Saint Cosme, which is quite rightly the envy of all other Gigondas producers. Located between two geological faults, the soil compositions and variations are like a patchwork of potential each giving life to slightly different characteristics in the vines planted there. The estate Gigondas is a blend of very old vines from three plots: Le Poste, Le Claux and Hominis Fides.

Saint Cosme Gigondas Le Claux 2012 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (96)

Probably my favorite of the single vineyard releases (although, truthfully, I find the quality among the three almost indistinguishable), the 2012 Gigondas Le Claux has beautiful minerality to go with notions of black fruits, smoked herbs, graphite and liquid violets. A big, full-bodied Gigondas, it never puts a foot wrong, has building, polished tannin and a blockbuster finish that stays focused. Give it a couple years and enjoy bottles through 2032.
